An Atlantic Adventure

Viking Sun Cruise Review by Calif-BeachBum

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: the Caribbean

After well over thirty ocean and river cruises, we were excited to board the Sun for our first ocean adventure with Viking, From the moment we were greeted at the airport, Viking made us feel like honored guests. Everything was well planned with little delay (OK there's not much anyone can do about the traffic between LaGuardia and midtown Manhattan at 5 PM on a Friday).

Our stateroom was spacious with plenty of storage areas. The bathroom was well apportioned with a sizable glass enclosed shower (plenty of storage there, too).

The veranda was spacious allowing plenty of room to maneuver around the two chairs and table. The cabin steward cleaned the glass daily.

Due to the tail effects of a recent hurricane our first couple days at see were a bit rough, but we found plenty to do and enjoyed relaxing in the room and at the Explorers' Lounge.

Dining was a nightly 'event' the food was prepared to order and well presented. We found the wine selection was just right or our tastes.

The planned a couple of tours on our own, which we enjoyed, but the included excursions were great, too.

While onboard we booked another cruise (24 Days) on the Viking Sky for later this year.

San Juan

It was a walking tour of Old Town (which we had seen previously) and it was pouring rain.

Island Tour

The first bus was old and uncomfortable and the A/C did not work. About halfway through the tour we found space on another bus and continued the tour (w/ A/C).

The driver barely said a word to us and spent way too long at the 'overlook' store talking w/ the other drivers.
